TH350 shifter PRNDL

My Cutlass has a space between P and R, but the trans doesn't match up to the space - when adjusted to be in P, reverse is in the space, N is at the R, etc. I have heard something a few years ago about 2 different shift indicators, depending on year or application. Anyone heard of this/seen this?

Thanks!

What year Cutlass?

After 65, I think the 3 speeds were optional.

Sorry - I guess I should have been more informative!

I just bought an 84 Cutlass Supreme that someone has put a 73ish Olds 455 with what looks like a TH350 into. I am trying to work the bugs out of the driveline for now, 'cause I am going to install it into my 85 later this summer if the rain can stay away for more than a day! This is why I am trying to ID everything concerning the motor/trans so I know what I have, and this trans is got me confused. I am hoping to put it on a lift at work here soon so I can see if the date/ID tag is still there, but anything I can find out to look for is helpfull.

FYI - the car originally came with the Buick 3.8 V6 and either a TH200C or a TH350C. My other engine/trans swaps have always had the PRNDL line up correctly with the TH350's I put in them, so that is what is confusing me - what is the difference?

PRNDL indicates a powerglide two speed trans. The TH-350 and TH-400 should have a PRND21 pattern.

Centerline

Are you trying to align it with the indicator on the column? You know that there is an adjuster screw under the column , right?

Make sure that the shifter is in the detent for the right gear, then adjust the pointer.

I am trying to align the trans to the shifter detents.

The cars' detents look like P RND21 - with space btwn P & R
the trans' detents go like PRND21 - No space btwn P & R

The indicator needle is the easy part - just move the little clip on the end of the string around the column shroud either way it needs to go.
